Maximum Attack G Extension Starts August 1st
What Shall Be the Fate of Maximum Attack: G Extension?
Maximum Attack G Extension will start August 1st 2008, Even though previously there has been talks about canceling the extension of MAG altogether. By canceling the event, Sega hopes to get back on track with updates. The community appears to be split on the issue. However the event has finally been announced for August 1st 2008 and will run through August 22nd 2008.
On one side, they find MAG extension as a way to level up alternate characters and new players as well. On the other side, players are already fed up with the constant delays. They want MAG canceled so they can receive their just rewards. However, if the extension is canceled, how will players affected by error 065 be compensated for missing a month of gameplay?
GM Chillaura put it simply..
Seriously there is obviously a division of opinion here, and we will see what we can do to accommodate everyone. Until we say otherwise we are still planning for a MAG extension in July, but are looking into our options for moving past MAG, getting you the earned rewards (or more), and trying to get back on schedule for August and beyond.
With this post, we are left to ponder what “more” could truly mean. It will be a tough road ahead for SEGA to figure out a plan to appease nearly everyone. It will be even tougher for them to keep active players from canceling their subscriptions all together. What will be SEGA’s next move?

Sega’s Next Move?
After a long wait, the possibility of the extension is now August 1st 2008. Although it has been mentioned many times that the extension is very likely to occur, it appears this August 1st is the new date to anticipate it. Chillaura added this to the current state of affairs:
Anyway, we have been waiting for a decision to be made for this week, as there is still a slim chance for an update. Sonic Team has not ruled it out but we can’t make any official announcements until they tell us.
But assuming that does not happen, everything is lined up for an update August 1st with MAG2, level cap increase, seasonal content and other small changes. Not everything we were hoping for but there is more on the way.
So we can safely say August 1st will have MAG. If not, you all know what to do!
